After months of endless paperwork, meetings and reaching out to the
SF Consulate, We Care Program participant Michael Lennox
Matthews was finally able to get his permanent resident card replaced
thanks to our very own, We Care Program Office Coordinator,
Jennifer Zessi and Melody Maldonado from Jeff Denhams office.
Meet Johnny!
Johnny is the latest participant in our Rapid Rehousing program. Although he is a
native of California, he spent a couple of years working in Kansas City and
Atlanta before moving to Turlock. Johnny is a private, and shy, person who is
easy to get along with, an avid bike rider, and a movie buff. He also finds
happiness and some fun in any work he does, describing his latest job as being
similar to a fun field trip. What Johnny looks forward to in his new home is
keeping it up to his cleanliness standard and watching movies!
Meet John Stanley

Meet John!
“My Name is John and thanks to the We Care Program of Turlock, I have a home!
About 10 years ago I had a heart attack and went in the hospital and had open-heart
surgery. 5 years later, I had another heart attack and now have a pacemaker. I am
disabled and the doctor’s orders were not to strain myself. I went to the We Care
Program and they let me take a shower every night, gave me a change of clothes, a
hot meal every night, and a bed to sleep in. Thank you We Care!”
